Dragan Samardzija


I received the B.S. degree in electrical engineering and computer science from the University of Novi Sad, Serbia, in 1996 and the M.S and Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Wireless Information Network Laboratory (WINLAB), Rutgers University, USA, in 2000 and 2004, respectively. Since 2000 I have been with Bell Laboratories, involved in research in the field of the next generation wireless systems. I teach and mentor graduate students at the University of Novi Sad. My research interests include analysis, design, and experimental evaluation of wireless systems.

I authored over 50 journal and conference publications and numerous patents pending. As a member of the BLAST project team, I am a recipient of the 2002 Bell Labs President's Award. I received the Central Bell Labs Teamwork Award for the HSDPA Demonstration Team, 2003. I have been involved in a number of experimental and measurement campaigns and system evaluations of different wireless systems.

I was born in 1972, Kikinda, Serbia.
